6 Architecture Firms to Present DePaul Stadium Concepts; Decision Expected in Early September

Blair Kamin, the Chicago Tribune's excellent Architecture columnist, recently had a great piece about the DePaul Stadium.  It's definitely worth a read if you're into the topic.

For those who don't care about the architectural details, here is a brief blurb talking about timing for this massive project:
But there are real concerns, among them a fast-track schedule that is giving the architects just a few weeks to prepare this complex architectural and urban design. Already, after one of the firms questioned the aggressive timetable, the schedule was pushed back two weeks, with plans due Aug. 27 instead of Aug. 13.  
The teams are to make presentations Sept. 9 and 10, with a winner expected to be picked by mid-September.
Stay tuned, this is going quickly.
